In just three months, the old burger joint was demolished and rebuilt into a modern, fast food restaurant.
They don't make 'em like they used to; and in this case, that's a good thing. The new Graham Road McDonald's, which opened its doors on Dec. 27, is a nice improvement from its somewhat cramped predecessor.
